Moving can be stressful whether it’s your first time or your tenth, locally or even interstate. If you’re reading this, odds are you are curious about your options, exploring the most affordable way to move, or are looking for an alternative to do-it-yourself moving.
Fortunately, you can make the process much easier and cheaper by being smart with your expenses and choosing the right option for you. These tips will help ease your mind during the moving process and allow you to focus on making your new house a home.
- Calculate the cost of moving out:
There are many costs involved when moving, and it’s important to factor in additional payments you may be making on top of your usual expenditure. These sometimes hidden costs that you may not have thought about include:
- Commercially cleaning your old and new residence
- Packing supplies, such as boxes, bubble wraps, packing tape
- Connection/Termination Fees
- Removalists Services
Budgeting these costs before you commence moving can really help you with your move and take the pressure off.

- Sell or get rid of items you won’t need:
Whether it’s stuff you don’t have room for, items you don’t use, or clothes that no longer fit, you will want to sell them before moving. When you move, you typically pack only the things that are both useful and meaningful to you. This way you’ll have less items to pack, saving on packing materials and the time it takes to move them as well. A win-win!
- Prepare your packing supplies:
When you’re packing, it’s important that all your valued belongings are safe when transferring them from one destination to another. Make sure that you have good packing boxes, bubbles wraps and even label makers. You can always buy the packing materials in a bulk if you want to do it yourself.
It might not always be viable to pack your belongings yourself. The disassembling of the furniture, heavy lifting and manoeuvring large items might not be for everyone. At AtoB Furniture removals, we provide stress free packing service. We are insured for any accidents you’d be responsible to fix or replace when moving yourself.
- Hire a removalists company:
This tip may sound contradictory to our title, but it will help you save money in the long run because such companies have the manpower and experience to do everything from packing your boxes to carrying them into your new home, sometimes even unpacking them for you. Why stress about how to get all your valued items and furniture from one place to the next, when you can outsource to a reputable team who can streamline this process, saving time and your sanity!
